The DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program protects people who arrived in the U.S. as undocumented minors, shielding them from deportation and giving them a path to legal residency. The TPS (Temporary Protected Status) program protects immigrants from certain countries which are suffering from natural disasters or from serious political unrest and allows them to remain in the U.S. until the situation in their home country has improved. Over a million people are in these two programs. The Trump administration has tried to roll back or eliminate these protections, and while court injunctions are keeping Trump temporarily at bay, these programs are at risk.
On June 4, the House passed H.R. 6 American Dream and Promise Act of 2019, which provides permanent legal protections and a pathway to citizenship for DACA and TPS recipients. The bill now moves to the Senate.
